The thing you see flying off after it landed was one of the white COPVs from the top of the hopper. I zoom in on it in slow motion at 10:57 for you guys. Other time stamps below 👇

SpaceX successfully hopped their StarShip prototype vehicle known as StarHopper with serial number 6 Raptor Engine. The vehicle flew to about 150 meters (492 feet) up and translated over to the landing pad about 100 meters away (328 feet). The object flying off at the end was a COPV (no that wasn’t supposed to happen).

This was a very important milestone for the StarShip / StarHopper prototype.

Cameras were Z Cam E2's at 200mm and 600mm.
